About Derek Field
Having owned vacation properties from the Martimes to the Muskoka areas this cottage on the St Lawrence is by far the most relaxing and true to what cottaging is about .The memories created in theses special places last a lifetime whether roasting marshmallows with the family or fishing in the boathouse with your Dad this is what it is should be about.
Derek Field purchased this Cottage in 2017

Loved the property. Very relaxing would rent again
The island and house was nothing short of an amazing week!
Derek was super friendly and absolutely a pleasure to deal with before and during our stay.
Would like to thank Michael and his family for allowing us to be part of their summer holidays and for treating Cordwood Island as if it was their own .Thanks again Derek
A one of a kind island adventure!
We had a wonderful week even with water levels at what seemed to be a metre higher than normally making some of the amenities inaccessible (i.e. decks/docks) due to the extraordinary year of flooding everywhere, however this didn't matter to us at all !! The island has incredible panoramic views with many spots outside to unwind, read a book, play badminton, do yoga, or just take in the views. Kayaking and paddle-boarding (brought our own) was great. It was a paradise for our dogs who were able to remain off leash the whole time. Their main pastime was chasing birds that were flying by to be assured that they wouldn't land on THEIR island :) The inside of the main cottage has a lovely living room and sunroom with large screened doors looking out across to Singer Castle in the distance. There were tons of blue ray and dvds, books and games! Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Derek was very responsive by text when we had questions. No biting bugs at all - just shad flies who were attracted to the lights. Spectacular holiday for our family of 8 and 2 dogs! Thanks very much Derek!
Beautiful and relaxing!
Staying on Cordwood Island was the perfect get away for the week. Some of us did not leave the island for the whole week while others of us took trips to Boldt Castle and Brockville. It was very close to a bike trail and also very close to hiking trails. It was the perfect location for our family vacation. We will definitely come back again!
Lovely island !
This river island built on a hill of granite was perfect for me. My peace and quiet were enhanced by the sounds of nature, birds, waterfowl, and the breeze coming off of the mighty St Lawrence. The property owner is a great host. I wanted for nothing. My biggest decision was whether to leave the island on the days the dump was open to take out the trash. Even the aforementioned dump had its charms.
Great Cottage, Unbelievable views, our own private island.
We all had a great time in the Thousand Islands. This cottage had all the amenities. Lots of space. Shade or sun all the time if we wanted. Just had to move from one side of the island to the other. Large oak trees surrounding the cottage. It was a hot week but we always had a nice breeze. The cottage itself had everything we needed including 2 fridges. You could walk into the water from shore or jump off the dock if you wanted. No weeds. We had 2 boats and there was lots of dockage. I would recommend this property to anyone. Looking forward to next year.
